  1. This guy is obviously not good at analyzing a situation, or picking up on fundamental principles. He tries to say ideas are worthless and maybe he's just trying to be controversial but in the end he's wrong. His arguments are also contradictory – he said ideas are worthless but goes on to say they are "important, but worthless if you can't execute them" and "you need to innovate" when did innovation come from anything other than an idea? even if it's process innovation it's all ideas. 

    BUT that being said, he struck gold when he began talking about "failing cheaply". that is the absolute truth, which is why I love bootstrapping – I think the ability to experiment cheaply with new (or old) ideas is 1000x more important than all the motivational "PUSH THROUGH IT" entrepreneurial videos out there.

  2. Disagree with ideas are worthless… It all starts with them. OF COURSE you have to execute on them and that is all there is to it, execution. But ideas ARE NOT worthless, if you did not have an idea in the first place, you could never execute anything! It all starts with a dream, then yea execute on it, unlike 99% of humanity. But to say that ideas are worthless is pretty ridiculous.

  3.
